Sea fishing on the French coast and especially on the Basque Coast offers a unique fishing experience, comparable to the best fishing destinations in the world. Fishing for tuna on the large feeding frenzies we have here is impressive, to say the least!
Using fly fishing or spinning tackle to catch those fish while they aggressively feed in large topwater frenzies is one of the most exciting experiences in an angler’s life.
Bluefin tuna is an extraordinary fish; its power and endurance make it a fantastic challenge for any sport fisherman.
Fishing for bluefin tuna is a real challenge: from the search of the feeding frenzy until the release of the fish, the angler is pushed into his limits permanently. The presence of a large topwater bluefin tuna feeding frenzy usually provoke a communicative hysteria on the boat: the sight of the sea surface boiling makes the excitement rise as the boat closes the gap. However, the angler must stay focused to successfully land his cast, and prepare to survive the intense strike and first rush of the fish.
The goal of the BFT guiding team is to make you experience this exciting fishing in the best possible conditions. That means finding and carefully approaching these topwater feeding frenzies, to put you within casting distance, on fly or spinning gear.
We only guide on the Basque country coast as this area is perfect for such fishing, with large and frequent topwater feeding frenzies. We will always do our absolute best to make your fishing experience unforgettable.
